Madarasz Online Course (4 lessons) (Starts August 10th, 2019)

from 195.00

Starts August 10th, 2019

In this course, I will begin by dissecting and demonstrating the unique characteristics of Madarasz’s script. We will learn how to execute capital letters with whole arm movement. With my guidance, each student will gain the tools necessary to acquire and develop Madarasz’s style. Knowledge of Spencerian, while certainly beneficial, will not be a prerequisite for this course. My secret agenda is to help students see why we even want to write like Madarasz, and to use what he has created as a model that inspires us to develop our own styles.

Each week for four weeks, there will be a 30+ minute instructional video, which will guide you through a specific topic or technique and assign homework so you can put the instruction into practice.

If you choose the “Without Feedback” option of the course, I will not be grading your homework but I will be happy to answer specific questions that you encounter in your practice. For those of you who choose to receive detailed feedback from me, you may choose to scan or take a photo of your homework and post it on the forum, where I will make suggestions on areas that can be improved.

You will have 60 days access to the course so you may truly learn at your own pace. If you believe you may need an extension, please reach out as soon as you can and I will try to accommodate your needs.

Supplies List

  • 1 Oblique Holder 

  • 1 Inkwell

    • I suggested the dinky dips but if you already have an inkwell, please ignore the dinky dip suggestion. 

  • Old World Iron Gall, McCaffery Ink (Any Color), or Tom Norton Walnut Ink

  • Rhodia Pad, Dot Grid 8.25"x11.75"

  • 28lb laser paper (available at Staples)

    • This is a cheaper alternative for practicing. The downside is that you have to line the paper yourself. 

  • Protractor

    • Essential for drawing and checking the slant of your script. 

  • Ruler

    • The S798. C-Thru 12 Inch GRAPH Ruler I recommended on the John Neal list is a very useful tool to have. The transparent graph lining allows you to check your measurements easily. 

  • Nibs

    • Leonardt Principal and Gillott 303. If you have only used G nibs, please make sure to purchase each of the above. Gillott 303's quality control has been an issue so I would suggest to purchase a few to make sure that you don't have damaged nibs. Also if you choose to use Old World Iron Gall, I suggest to purchase multiple nibs as it is fairly acidic and will eat away at the nib faster even with frequent cleaning.

  • Paper Towel & Water to clean Nibs

  • Pencil

  • Eraser
